Statistical Sources

The following are international links to sources for national statistics around the world.


It should be mentioned that government statistics in countries such as the Middle East, Africa, India, Pakistan, etc., are highly flawed, outdated and even missing.  Authentic statistics, particularly about behavior that is perceived as opposed to cultural pride, are either hidden, not recorded or presented falsely. To get a better overview of more reliable statistics, better sources are local and regional non-profit organizations that work on particular issues and collect surveys within their areas of work.

Additional Sources:

Statistics in the West related to crime, demographics, asylum, financial effect from immigration, etc., may need research into additional sources or local departments to cover statistics that may not be accessible through National Statistics below.
